Searches for a byte sequence in a binary file
'binfind' searches files for a byte sequence. The pattern can be given on the command line in ASCII or hex, read from a file, or a combination of the above. It uses the Boyer-Moore algorithm and can search large files without using a lot of memory. For each occurrence of the pattern, 'binfind' prints a line containing the offset of the occurrence in the searched file. If the user specifies more than one file, binfind prints the filename and a colon before the offset.
